Today, both small and large molecule, and bio-specimen, collections are used by multiple research groups for varying research aims, from basic science through to clinical trials. In this forum, an expert panel from across compound and bio-sample management will share perspectives on areas of strength in their disciplines. This will be followed by a focussed debate on the future direction of their disciplines and the opportunity for broader impact of innovation, skills and talents across sample management.
